Staff Blog: Natural order restored

Tony Hoare, 27 November 2013 09:54

I thought I was done for winter. After a couple of weeks on holiday I’d not got back into the habit of riding to work every day, thanks to my insistence that I would only ride when I wanted to, not because I felt I needed to. There’s also my reluctance to get the Triumph coated in winter cack as ...

Staff Blog: Triumph Street Triple R at Silverstone

MCN, 10 September 2013 17:03

  Two years ago, MCN Consumer Editor Tony Hoare almost died after an accident at Cadwell Park. He hadn't been back on track since, until he took his Triumph Street Triple R for a trackday on the International Circuit at Silverstone. brightcove.createExperiences(); BLOG13 | STREET13

Staff Blog: In search of confidence

Tony Hoare, 24 June 2013 17:56

I’ve started to try and get to the bottom of the confidence issue I reported in the paper last week, which has left me with chicken strips on the Street Triple R’s Pirelli tyres. First step was to order some Dunlop Sportsmart tyres. I’m not blaming my drained  confidence on the standard Pirelli Diablo Corsas - but I’ve never ridden ...

Staff Blog: Please don't kill me

Tony Hoare, 11 June 2013 11:43

Well that was the scariest, most bum-puckery, head-duckery moment I’ve had since I got back on a bike in the Spring. Casually riding south on the A1, thinking about whether to make one more overtake before reaching the exit that leads to the MCN office. Yes, there’s loads of room to pass a dawdling Audi. Check mirror, indicate, aim just ...

Staff Blog: Fair-weather rider? I wish

Tony Hoare, 24 May 2013 15:20

This year I’ve been trying to turn myself into a fair weather rider. Honestly, it’s not me, it’s the bike  - I don’t mind riding in the wet and have done thousands of miles in the rain over the years. But the Street Triple R really doesn’t like the wet. The handling doesn’t inspire me to commute the long way ...

Staff Blog: The long way home

Tony Hoare, 25 April 2013 14:52

“The ride to work is going to be a blast on the nimble triple – and the ride home again is going to be even better. Dear A1, you’ll not be seeing much of me.” The grey and red Triumph Street Triple R in the shed outside work has my name on it. Figuratively, not literally of course. I’ve got ...

Video: 2013 Triumph Street Triple R first ride

MCN, 08 November 2012 14:00

The current Triumph Street Triple, the British firm’s best selling machine in the past five years (they’ve sold 50,000), weighs just 189kg, full of fuel and ready-to-go, which is bugger-all. This new version, available in dealers in the middle of November is lighter still. Weighing a piffling 183kg it’s going to strike fear into its main rival: the 211kg Suzuki ...

Ace Cafe's 10th anniversary Triumph Street Triple R cafe racer

MCN, 07 October 2011 13:54

Who better to build a cafe racer Triumph than the Ace Cafe itself? Well that's pretty much what happened with this limited edition, Street Triple R-based special. Built to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the re-opening of the cafe, the bikes are being put together by renowned Triumph customisers Jack Lilley. Just 10 examples will be built, each individually numbered ...

Hooligan Triumph Street Triple R café racer special

Michael Neeves, 26 August 2011 12:31

This Street Triple R is the latest in the line of brilliantly-executed specials created by Triumph dealer Jack Lilley. Designed to mimic the café racer style, it actually looks uncannily like any number of RD350LC and YPVS specials that terrorised the streets in a haze of two-stroke smoke back in the 80s. That bellypan, those low LSL clip-ons and the ...
